Keeping standard mixes on hand also makes mixing up tasty drinks easier than ever! Tequila goes far beyond a margarita! Enjoy these tasty tequila drinks that suit everyone’s tastes! From shots to margaritas and drinks that are NOT margaritas, they are all perfect!

Mixed Drinks with Tequila
Now we get to the down and dirty…let’s face it, this is where tequila likes to be! If you like trying out new recipes for shots, then these tequila drinks are for you! All of these recipes would be great for your next party or a night out BUT they’re also really fun to whip up at home.
Finally, no tequila drinks collection would be complete without a shot of tequila. You probably don’t need a recipe for this one, tried and true tequila fans will take a regular shot of tequila all by itself! But there are shots that add more flavor and are just as good. Those are coming next.

Shots are easier to make though they do require a bit of a gentle hand. That is because many of them are pouring straight into the shot glass. The last thing you want is to overfill the shots. But they are worth the effort to make and can make taking shots more fun and less…shivery, if you know what we mean.
